I am loving all this wallpaper or wrapping paper on the backs of bookcases and cabinets.. but what about covering up a mirror on your curio cabinet? Well, I decided to give it a try...
I have owned this little beauty for about 18 years.
She has followed me from Texas all the way to Connecticut and has displayed all my pretties lovingly for so many years.
I simply purchased a $20 roll of wallpaper from a hardware store for this project.
Out with the old: I cleared out the shelves and used double sided tape to hang this paper up.
I really like the simple neutral background of this wall paper, but I think a bolder brighter pattern would be fun too.
That's the beauty of this project, its not permanent and you can change it out whenever you want!
I laid the paper up and when I was done I used an x-acto knife to cut the paper down to a perfect fit and get all the angles right. A razor blade would work too.
In with new: I slipped the shelves back in and decorated them with some pieces just like you would a bookshelf. I added some pieces I recently picked up from a thrift store along with some pieces that hold memory from my family.
The end result: While it's not an actual bookshelf this look gives the illusion it is and takes the once dated curio to a modern level. What do you think?
Do you have a bookshelf or curio cabinet you'd like to update?
Here's one idea for your closet!
